Profile updated 20/07/18
I am a Blue Badge guide for Central Southern England covering Hampshire, West Sussex, Wiltshire, Dorset, the Jurassic Coast, Isle of Wight, Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Windsor Castle. I have a Diploma from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (1998) and undertook a viticulture and winemaking course at Plumpton College in Sussex, so the increasingly successful vineyards of Southern England are of great interest. I am also an accredited Windsor Castle guide.
A super way to visit the area is by sea and I can offer guided trips in the Solent on a skippered luxury motor yacht. We visit ports like Cowes (for Osborne House), Lymington (for the New Forest), Southampton and Portsmouth (for its Historic Dockyard), as well as unspoilt little harbours and inlets like Newtown Creek and the Beaulieu River.
I enjoy showing off my home region to visitors and locals alike. We have such a wonderful array of treasures to see and experience and I love helping people explore those hidden gems.
